The Tree Street Kids live on Cherry, Oak, Maple, and Pine, but their 1990s suburban neighborhood is more than just quiet, tree-lined streets. Jack, Ellison, Roger, and Ruthie face challenges and find adventures in every creek and cul-de-sac—as well as God’s great love in one small neighborhood.

In the first book of the Tree Street Kids series, 10-year-old Jack is shocked to discover his parents are moving from their rural homestead to the boring suburbs of Chicago. Full of energy and determination, Jack devises a plan to get himself back to his beloved farmhouse forever. Only three things stand in his way: a neighbor in need, a shocking discovery, and tornado season. Will Jack find a solution? Or is God up to something bigger than Jack can possibly imagine?

I enjoyed stories like this when I was a child. And I love the wholesome, nostalgic atmosphere this story emotes. It brings older readers back to simpler days and introduces younger readers to days gone by.

 

Jack is a great character and easy to empathize with. I know what it’s like at that age to move away from your home to start over somewhere new. And what a huge change moving from a farmhouse to city suburbs must be! 

 

Tree Street Kids, a name for Jack’s new friends that live on streets with tree names, each have unique qualities and show growth as the story progresses. But what I like most is the spiritual aspect that is woven throughout this story in a natural, meaningful way.

 

Jack vs. the Tornado, book 1 in the Tree Street Kids series, with illustrations throughout,is a clean, sensible chapter book with memorable characters and a wonderful message for kids 8-12.
